London (CNN)A massive fatberg, weighing more than 300 tons, is clogging a sewer in an English city -- and authorities say it is unlikely to move for weeks.

The mammoth mass of waste stretches to more than half a mile in length and weighs 330 tons, Seven Trent Water said in a statement.

"It's a massive project and it's not resolved yet," added Scott Burgin, operations manager at Severn Trent.

Fatbergs (the word is a portmanteau of fat and iceberg) form over time as items that can't be broken down are flushed or washed down drains instead of disposed correctly.
